Midlands manufacturing is magnet for FS Mackenzie

[ November 24, 2012   //   ]

FS Mackenzie – the UK member of the FPS freight forwarder network – has opened its fifth office at East Midlands Airport. It will offer a full range of air and ocean forwarding services with particular emphasis on ocean NVOCC services. FS Mackenzie offers weekly export and import LCL services to over 120 ports worldwide. It will also work with the Heathrow office to generate airfreight business through East Midlands Airport.

The new Midlands office is headed by Steven Alder as regional manager, who has 20 years’ experience in freight.

FS Mackenzie MD Alfred Stienen said the Midlands was chosen for its strong manufacturing bias, adding:“We see the Midlands as an area with great potential for our company: not just for ocean consolidations, but also airfreight, and roadfreight into Europe and to our specialist areas such as Russia, Ukraine and Eastern Europe.”

In addition to its latest office, the company has a headquarters at Basildon and offices at Heathrow, Liverpool and Dover. It specialises in the retail sector, FCL and LCL, project and outsize cargo, hazardous shipments, books, wheeled cargo (rolling and containerised), hanging garments, glass and ceramics, metals and personal effects.
